Coilcraft Intros Wirewound Chip in 0402 Body SizeMay 31, 1999 by Jeff Shepard
Coilcraft (Cary, IL) is offering their wirewound chip in an 0402 body size. These parts measure just .047 x .025 x 0.24 high. Twenty one part numbers cover the inductance range from 1 to 40nH with available tolerances of plus or minus 5-10 percent. Coilcraft claims the performance of Coilcraft's wirewound 0402 inductor significantly surpasses that of non-wirewound alternatives. A 2.2 nH Coilcraft part has a Q factor of 100 at 1.8 GHz. Because of their low dc resistance, Coilcraft chips can handle 200-to-300 percent more current than non-wirewound 0402 inductors.
